Staying at home today as Alan needs the car to get to work.
Emily got up at 6am ( was supposed to wake me to but for some reason didn't! ) with him to see the Eclipse.Didn't get to see it but they had a lovely early morning chat and she then went back to bed where she is still snuggled fast asleep at 10.30.
We have guests coming for tea tonight. My plans for my day at home look a little like this.
Freeze batches of veg tomato sauce ( made yesterday) to be used in various meals over the next month or so.
Make a roasted butternut squash and red pepper soup for lunches over the holiday period.
Use the very ripe bunch of Bananas I bought at a knockdown price to make banana bread.
Make a sweet potato cake and ice it for pudd tonight.
Make a caramel sauce to go with the sweet potato cake or ice cream.
Boil and then roast potatoes.
Make Parmesan chicken nuggets (baked in the oven)
Hoover and generally give the place a quick once over.
Help Milly tidy her room in readiness for a sleepover tomorrow night.
Still in my nightie so better get a wriggle on!
